After being booted off “The Bachelorette” on Monday night’s episode, Chris Bukowski is confirmed as the final “Bachelor Pad 3″ contestant. Get ready for a heaping helping of drama, hookups, and roses when “Bachelor Pad” returns for its third season on July 23.
This season’s contestants include the standard “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” rejects — some more entertaining than others — but there is a new twist this go-around, as there will also be five “superfans” (including twin sisters who count as one — yeah, I don’t get it either) competing for $250,000, with a possible side of romance. But let’s be honest, what we are really excited for is the crazy, which isBachelor Pad’s claim to fame. Even Chris proved in his final moments on Emily’s season that he had enough edge for the spin-off with his closing statement: “I’m 10 times the man of all those fucking dudes that are still there right now.” And what better way to see what we can expect from this group of rose rejects than to review their best and worst moments on TV? So check out this season’s standout contestants and their most dramatic moments from the “Bachelor” franchise now! Read more…
Oh, those demure ”Jersey Shore” kids! When MTV signed up Snooki, JWoww, The Situation, and the rest, it knew it had an explosive mix of sex, alcohol, and cheesiness, and the ratings proved this is what the people want (god help them)! But MTV isn’t stupid either. It knew this mix could get the cast into trouble — and I’m not talking about their many arrests. I’m talking about VD here, people. STDs. Sexually transmitted diseases. AIDS. Herpes. Gonorrhea. MTV didn’t care much if anyone got an STD, mind you. But it didn’t want to be held responsible for it. So apparently the cast had to sign a “VD waiver,” promising they wouldn’t sue the network in case any of the cast members got the fire down below. Read more…
I watched last night’s episode of “Miss Advised” from the American Airlines terminal bar at San Francisco’s airport while tossing back three glasses of prosecco before my red eye flight. It was really quite perfect. I had been looking forward to this episode, in as much as it’s possible to look forward to an episode of “Miss Advised,” because previews indicated it would feature Julia Allison reading her hate site in the company of a love coach named Annie Lala. As a regular reader of that hate site — Reblogging Donk, read it, it’s hilarious — I was eager to see how it would be presented and how it would fit into Julia’s storyline. Keep reading »
What fresh hell is this? It seems that before she was a multi-tasking, Skinny Girl Margarita-mix-making, talk show-having, reality TV star, Bethenny Frankel worked as a PA on the set of “Saved By The Bell.” That’s where she met acting luminary and Professionally Creepy Dude Dustin Diamond. This photo is obviously ground zero for cultural herpes or something.
Oh, where to begin, where to begin? “Miss Advised,” Bravo’s new show about dating experts who don’t actually know anything about dating, started episode two with good news for unemployed dating columnist Julia Allison — she’s been “offered” a “job” “writing” for Elle! After working as a “journalist” for 10 years, this is her dream job! What luck! What’s not mentioned, of course, is that her “job” with Elle was arranged for her by Bravo. Duh, whatever, the arrangement is exposure for Elle so I can’t hate on anyone for pulling strings. Except that even a fake-ish gig is too much for Julia Allison to handle, who breaks down in tears after her totally cringe-worthy call with her new editor, who requested that she come up with some ideas for her column. The stress and fear that she might fail is too much. Why did her mom have to set such high expectations for success by being a speech writer for Nixon? Keep reading »
This is the Palin Conundrum: ignore them and hope they go away, or pay attention to the insipid things they do in order to mock them, thus contributing to their tick-bite hold on the public psyche.
The good news is that in Bristol Palin’s upcoming Lifetime reality show “Life’s A Tripp,” girlfriend may just encourage you to stop paying attention to her out of sheer apathy. The attempts at plot drama — paparazzi are taking photos! some man confronts Bristol in a bar about her mom! — are the kinds of “drama” that would have ended up on the “Real Housewives” cutting room floor. The best part is when Bristol tells her sister “I wouldn’t wish this on anyone,” which is usually the feeling of someone who does a reality show. So grab yourself a double espresso and check out the series trailer. At least Tripp is cute? See an extended clip from the show, featuring mom Sarah, after the jump! [MyLifetime] Keep reading »
